Obon a Success
Thank you for your support – Obon was a successful one. After receiving some “blessing” showers prior to this year’s Obon Festival, we were rewarded by a beautiful night with cooling breezes.
Due to the participation and hard work of members, family, and friends, 2018 Obon was a success. Once again, businesses such as Service Rentals & Supplies and M. Toguchi Body Shop donated goods and services to our cause, and farmers were very generous with donations of their produce. And we can’t forget all the hard working bakers who donated all the baked goods which were a sellout. We very much appreciate the efforts of Maui Okinawa Kenjin Kai who provided the food for our crowd, and to the Maui Zendo Group who did an amazing job taking care of the parking. Together with the very talented groups who provided this year’s entertainment, we were able to present another wonderful Obon Festival.
We were honored to have the Reverend Seiya Chisaka of the Toenji Temple of Japan attend and are grateful for his and the Temple’s continued support.
Wishing all of you good health.
